 My Favorite Things,  was featured in the June 28, 2009 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsleter, and it was created by Peggy Martin.

Peggy says she wanted a quilt that incorporated some of her favorite things. She enjoys going to festivals more than anything, so she gathered up t-shirts she had collected from various festivals and put them in a quilt. Because many of the festivals were in other places such as Cincinnati and Harlem, the quilt is also a wonderful documentary of her travels.

T-shirt quilts are very easy to make. Just gather up your favorite shirts. Iron interfacing on the back to stiffen them a bit and sew them to fabric in an arrangement that pleases you. Voila!

You will be able to see My Favorite Things up close and share some of Peggy’s memories at the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show August 1-7, 2009 at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park.

This bright and fun-filled quilt called Favorite Cousins was made by Peggy Martin. I just know these girls are ready to have fun. Peggy made this quilt as a fund raiser for her family reunion. The quilt was raffled to offset expenses of the gathering, and one lucky family member went home with a quilt. Favorite Cousins shows off six little girls in their brightly colored family reunion dresses offset be a coordinating border.  

This quilt should definitely get you in the mood for your family reunion.
